Have you been charged with a probation or parole violation?
Standing in front of the very Judge who sentenced you, on a violation of his or her probation or parole can be a very frightening situation. Having an attorney with over 20 years experience who knows the laws, is familiar with the probation office and the court system, and who will speak up on your behalf, can improve your prospects of avoiding jail or other loss of freedoms.
Did the police search you, your home, or your motor vehicle without a warrant?
A good lawyer knows that the Pennsylvania and U.S. Constitution protect each citizen against police or government agents who search you or your property without probable cause to do so. Any evidence taken by police under such circumstances cannot be used against you and can result in a dismissal of your case.
Have you received a traffic violation?
If you receive a traffic citation please be advised that if you check the guilty box on the back of the ticket and send your money in, serious hidden consequences may follow. The Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Code is full of unpleasant surprises, pitfalls and penalties for the uninformed driver. Certain motor vehicle offenses including reckless driving, driving under suspension, driving without a license or a speeding offense which result in points assigned can result in a suspension of your license. The driver is usually unaware of this suspension when he pleads guilty until weeks later when the notice of suspension comes in the mail from the Department of Motor Vehicles.
Expungement of criminal history and records
